7:14 am
the broken immigration system. >> reporter: and now president obama will act. the goal? free from deportation an estimated 5 million undocumented children and adults. most of the adults will also be eligible for work permits. those most likely to qualify, undocumented children of u.s. citizens or parents of children with permanent legal resident status. also, more children brought here illegally as youngsters. the so-called dreamers. top republicans called the move reckless. >> the president's going to tell the people who have been waiting patiently in line, playing by the rules, get in the back of the line, i'm going to put millions of people ahead of you in front of the line who have not played by the rules. >> reporter: the democrats warned republicans they are on the wrong side of history. >> when any political party in history has decided to make anti-immigration their standard and their value, they have withered and disappeared as they should. >> reporter: the president will formally set all this in motion
7:15 am
by signing the necessary paperwork at an event friday in las vegas. meanwhile, the sparring over this has already begun. >> major, thanks. a newly released video this morning shows bill cosby refusing to discuss sexual assault allegations. the "associated press" interviewed the comedian and his wife camille two weeks ago about their art collection and cosby was also asked about the women who claim he drugged and attacked them. >> no, no, we don't answer that. >> okay, i just wanted to ask if you wanted to respond at all about whether any of that was true. >> there's no response. >> okay. can i ask you with the persona that people know about bill cosby, should they believe anything differently about -- >> there is no comment about that. >> okay. >> and i'll tell you why. i think you were told, and i don't want to compromise your
7:16 am
integrity, but we don't -- i don't talk about it. >> a short time later cosby asked the reporter not to use that part of the interview. >> now, can i get something from you. >> what's that? >> that none of that will be shown. >> i -- i can't promise that myself. you didn't say anything -- >> i know i didn't say anything, but i'm asking your integrity that since i didn't want to say anything but i did answer you in terms of i don't want to say anything of what value will it have. >> this morning nbc has dropped plans to develop a new series with cosby, and the tvland cable channel is no longer showing episodes of "the cosby show." cbs news contributor frank luntz is in washington. he's an expert on crisis communications. frank, good morning. >> good morning. >> what do you make of this ap video, frank? >> it was very difficult. as you listen to the tone of the
7:17 am
reporter, clearly he didn't want to ask this question. reporters don't want to challenge bill cosby because of what he represents for america. he really was america's dad, so this is difficult for everybody. but, charlie, when you have six people, six women, there's a rule of communication. one example is random. two examples is a trend. once you get three, that's pretty factual to the ears of the average american. and cosby's response, that nonresponse, once you have three people, you're going to be expected to say a lot more. >> you know, frank, the front page of one of the new york papers says "it's time for america's dad to talk." do you think he should do an interview? and what could he possibly say? >> he needs to do an interview. and this whole thing is tragic. for bill cosby not to answer these allegations, and if they're true, not to acknowledge in his life mistakes were made is a tragedy because he loses
7:18 am
his credibility that he will never get back in his remaining career. >> i'm still not sure what he could say in an interview, frank, what is your point about that? >> that he has to tell the truth. >> okay. >> if he did do the things he's accused of, then he has to acknowledge it because it can become a learning lesson. by the way, that's what "the cosby show" is about. teaching families across the spectrum about how to behave in life. now he has an opportunity to do so in his own personal life. >> he's on tour. he's 77 years old. we hear the tour is going on as scheduled. tomorrow night, it's sold out. what do you think happens now? >> i think people are going to come to that tour and expect him to say something. and if he doesn't, that audience is going to be very disappointed. it's come to the point, when it's in the first hour of your show, that tells me it's significant, it's genuine news, and he needs to say something to his audience tomorrow night. >> it's on the front page of "the new york times" as well. >> exactly. >> and do you think he should say something in a statement or an interview?
7:19 am
>> no, you have do it personally. when you commit this kind of offense, it's not enough to put it in writing. you have to look straight at the camera, straight at the interviewer, and tell the american people what happened, why, why you are sorry, if something did happen. because in the end, there's no conviction. they will listen to what he has to say, but he has to say it. he cannot write it. >> all right. frank luntz, thank you. >> thank you. it is 7:19. a a lot of fog outside right now but some stormy weather is coming our way in the next few hours. in fact, that will be picking up in the north bay very, very soon. out there along the coastline we have some thick fog setting in toward ocean beach. our hi-def doppler radar showing you that storm it's going to pack a punch onshore. expect heavier rainfall in the bay area in the middle of the day and the afternoon. temperatures going to be in the

7:33 am
anyone can log on to see the live feeds from your bedroom to security systems all with a map straight to your front door. charlie dagget is in london where the government is demanding russia take this site down. >> good morning. the website has been up and running for months, peering into offices and people's bedrooms for all the world to see. it claims it's doing it for their own good, shining a light on the problem of weak security. they have eyes on everywhere. so-called private web cams a couple clicks away from anyone with an internet connection. businesses like this shop in amarillo, a laundromat in salt lake city. a university like this one in iowa. private homes down to baby monitors. these are children's bedrooms in the united states this morning. a babysitting up in virginia, fast asleep in utah, in the corner of her cot in florida. we've blurred out their faces. the website does not.
7:34 am
and it's not just that. we blurred out the exact coordinates the site provides, complete with links to a map. this parking lot in kansas is just down the street from amanda's bakery and a liquor store. the russian website claims what they're doing is entirely legal because they've hacked into cameras where the owners didn't change the default password. they go so far as to claim the purpose is to highlight poor user security. there are more than 4,000 cameras listed in the u.s. and 152 countries to choose from worldwide. from a beach parking lot in australia to the tokyo skyline to not far from us in london. britain's information commissioner chris for a graham says anyone who failed to set a secure camera password is vulnerable. >> these can be accessed in the same way you might want to check what's going on in your business premise or your shop or you want

7:36 am
really big year. they've been paying dividends to shareholders. and jetblue has been lagging behind. this is ancillary revenue. the money made from checked backs is huge for airlines. so jetblue is getting on that train. >> it used to be considered the go-to for low-cost carriers. >> jetblue really made its name as the no-frills airline where you got a lot of leg room and paid a lot less for your fares. that's just not the case. it's looking more like a traditional airline. jetblue introduced a business-class product for transcontinental flights over the summer. now it's going to be asking people to pay for checked bags, less leg room. it's looking a lot like a traditional domestic carrier. >> wall street liked this news. of course, their stock price is up. what about the customers? could it backfire? >> i think it's a very risky move. they've made their name as the airline with more leg room and no checked bag fees. it's going to be very interesting to see how people respond. the thing is, there aren't that many planes in the skies right now. we're flying at capacity.
7:37 am
so people don't have many other options. >> and other airlines are adding prices as well. >> exactly. southwest is the holdout for no checked bags. people can make a decision and fly with southwest. but i think people are kind of beholden to the airlines now. >> are we going to see a lot more congestion as we always have at thanksgiving? more weeks of the year? >> there are some predictions of that. you know, we're flying at capacity. a lot of our airports are older. there's a lot of capital investment going into airplane terminals. but we are flying at capacity and there are a lot more people flying in the skies. >> let's talk about airline flying in general. when i was a little kid, you used to have to dress up to get on a plane. you wore nice shoes. i remember having to wear gloves. i don't expect people to dress up anymore. but don't you think it's a very different day? i feel we're loaded on like cattle in many cases. do you know what i mean? it's a mess. >> there's not much dignity left
7:38 am
when you're sitting in the back of the plane. it's a bifurcated flying experience. they're making most of their money off people sitting in first and business class. those people are getting better cabins, more services outside of the actual flight. and if you're sitting in the back of the plane, you really -- you're getting better technology. they say the seat comfort level is up, but you have less leg room and you are paying more. >> all right. amy, thank you. >> thank you very much. i know what you're thinking. i know exactly what you're thinking. yes, i'm flying in the front of the plane, but i do think it's bad. i know exactly what you're thinking. thank you, amy. a popular app takes traffic off the main roads, but it has to end up somewhere. now why a once quiet community says not in your neighborhood. you're watching "cbs this morning." next week is my favorite day of the year. black friday. trample a guy on a tuesday
